Garmin reversing camera

Post by uapman on Wed Oct 25, 2017 9:24 pm

Hi, All,

Has anybody experienced the loss of reversing image with a Garmin 660 - which has a wireless function.  It is only a few months old    4 in fact- I have tried resyncing but now all i get are the distance warning lines and a black background. 

It started to go wrong when on one occasion when I selected reverse the image was upside down - then thereafter fuzzy with what appeared to be interference lines then blackness?  confused3

Hi. There is quite a lot about this on another forum post so well worth a look.

It's a bluetooth connection.  The basic "turn it off and on again" situation can sometimes work.

Unpair the camera in the settings menu and then re-pair which sometimes resets the camera.

Not the same problem as yours but our 2016 camera had a reversed image and fuzzy picture. After trying everything suggested, including  a 'guaranteed fix' from Garmin we got a new camera under warranty.   Try downloading the manual for your camera from the Garmin site, there are some models that have a reset menu and others that don't. Best of luck.

just an update-- I had it checked under warranty and they agreed it needed a new camera - so I now have to wait for an order from AS who in turn will be asking Garmin for a replacement - 'next year fix then lol
